Business & Entrepreneurship

Women are making strides in the workplace but the numbers are still stagnating across management and line positions. One of the keys to increased success is offering strong mentoring programs, but many women struggle to find influential supporters who can help navigate organizational power structures.

Women and men mentors and sponsors are essential for supporting women’s career advancement whether in corporations, academia, small businesses, philanthropy or the nonprofit sector.
